If your accountant is only there to offer taxation advice and prepare your yearly returns – it’s time to look elsewhere. You and your business deserve more than that. Business success doesn’t happen by chance. And although taxation support is important, the right accountant can also deliver incredible value in business strategy as well.

There are plenty of us out there, so if you’re wondering how to choose an accountant, we’ve listed some important aspects you should consider.

Choose a Certified or Chartered Accountant

If you want more than just a number cruncher, look for a Certified or Chartered Accountant. These accountants have gone the extra mile to be experts in their field and can bring valuable strategy and development advice to your business. They’re accountants who maintain the highest ethical and professional standards, while also committing to ongoing learning. These qualities mean that you can always count on accurate and relevant advice

A Good Accountant Will Help Your Business Grow

Gone are the days of reactive relationships! If you’re in one with your current accountant, we urge you to consider other options. We believe in proactive action and education, so you can get where you want to be. Whether it’s advice to help you improve cash flow, raise capital, or operate more efficiently – there’s no better outcome than seeing a business grow in ways they never thought possible.

Find an Accountant who Takes a Holistic View

The right accountant doesn’t just call when tax time rolls around. The right one will get to know you, and your business. Because believe it or not, they are inextricably linked. They will get to know your personal and professional goals because reaching them is often dependent upon each other. The right accountant will take your entire financial journey into perspective and work out a plan for you to reach your lifestyle potential.

Find Someone who can Guide you Toward a Strategy That Will Deliver

Many business owners find themselves lacking momentum or their business struggling with decreasing profitability. This can happen when you don’t have the right strategy or plan in place. With the right accountant by your side, you can have a strategy for growth and a pathway to reach the goals you’d like to achieve in your business. And it will be well thought out, well-planned and within the realms of possibility.
